Kiss It Better

Smriti Prasadam-Halls

For every time of day there's a kiss to go with it, and whether you're big or small, young or old, it always makes you feel better. So the next time you see someone you love, just remember . . . a kiss is the very best gift of all!

A tender expression of love, Kiss It Better is the perfect gift for every parent and child who love Nancy Tillman and Marianne Richmond.
